2013 Knight Community Information Challenge

25,534 views

Published on

Starting May 1, Knight Foundation will again be offering matching funds to community and place-based foundations seeking to make an impact by funding news and information projects. This year, though the Knight Community Information Challenge is evolving. While the challenge will continue to be an open contest for all kinds of media projects, this year we will be offering up to $50,000 in seed funding to foundations for new ideas. Our goal is to provide the support funders need to test their ideas and assumptions, and iterate as need be, before going on to the more costly process of building out a full project. Also in this round, we will be particularly interested in Open Government projects, an area we think shows great promise. Find out more at www.infoneeds.org. The challenge deadline has been extended to July 1, 2013.
